Project: Moss Stitch Blanket (Free Pattern)

For a little while, I had been working on a moss stitch blanket as a gift. With all the leftover yarn from my bag of FibraNatura Lima, I decided it was enough to make a small blanket to cover the lap of an adult, or used a baby blanket. The project I used this yarn previously for was a knitted turban headband that you can read about here.

All there was left to do was to get started. The moss stitch is very basic and all I had to do was cast on enough stitches for it to be wide enough and go. At first, I was worried about whether I'd have enough yarn to finish it off but as I progressed, it seemed pretty clear that I would be able to finish it with the dimensions I had in mind. 

It is designed to be a very quick knit but I took my time. 

I debated whether I wanted to line the blanket with fleece or not. It was heavy enough as it was with the wool. In the end, I decided against it. 

Moss Stitch Blanket

What you need:

  • Bulky Yarn, 12ply (I used FibraNatura Lima in Ecru) - In total, I used (insert metres and yards)
  • US 10 1/2 6.5mm circular needles or straight needles - I used 35cm straight needles but that meant I had it bundled up on the needle. Highly recommend using circular needles.
  • Yarn needle or tapestry needle (to tidy up tails)


  1. Cast on 101 stitches (make sure you have an odd number of stitches if you intend to alter the dimensions).
  2. p1,*k1,p1* throughout (repeat stitches between the *)
  3. Bind off when you reach your desired length. Weave in the loose ends with a yarn needle.
